Celebrating our volunteers

From 18 to 24 May 2020, Churches of Christ in Queensland will join thousands of organisations across Australia to mark National Volunteer Week.

For more than 30 years, National Volunteer Week has been the largest celebration of volunteers and volunteerism in the nation.

This year’s theme ‘Changing Communities. Changing Lives’, acknowledges the generous contribution of volunteers who have donated both their skills and time.

Churches of Christ in Queensland Chief Executive Officer Gary Edwards said volunteers provide indispensable support to many of the organisation’s communities, and deserve recognition for the substantial contributions they make to society.

“We celebrate and recognise our volunteers every day, but this week is a timely reminder of the need to honour our exceptionally skilled and valued volunteers who are not only an asset to Churches of Christ in Queensland and to the way we provide services, but strengthen our communities as well,” Gary said.

This year we will recognise more than 1060 volunteers across all our services and in our mission activities.

Volunteers help bring the light of Christ into communities by connecting people with culture, community and spirit.

They facilitate a range of activities including companionship and pastoral care, as well as much needed practical support in the areas of gardening, maintenance, social and recreational activities, and administration.
